New Year’s resolutions for people on Michigan workers’ compensation.
Our law firm is closed on December 31, 2018 and January 1, 2019 for the long holiday weekend. We hope everyone has a wonderful time celebrating the new year. Here are some New Year’s resolutions for individuals on Michigan workers’ compensation.
Resolution #1: Discuss legal options with a professional.
Getting hurt on-the-job is not something most people think about. It can be overwhelming dealing with the employer or insurance carrier. Supporting a family on just 80% pay (or less) is extremely difficult. Medical bills quickly add up and disputes are common. We recommend getting a free telephone consultation to discuss legal options. There is no fee unless additional benefits are obtained.
Resolution #2: Get needed medical treatment.
Medical is an important part of workers’ compensation. Bills should be covered 100% without co-pays or deductibles. Do not suffer without medical treatment! Make an appointment with a doctor and find out if treatment options exist. Insurance company disputes can be challenged in court!
Resolution #3: Tune out the noise.
Friends and relatives always want to give advice. It is easy to talk big when their life has not been turned upside-down. Following the wrong advice can hurt a workers’ compensation case. Tune out the noise and follow the advice of medical and legal professionals.
